Run in landscape mode. Change str to whatever you want to be said. Select a language and a voice then press PLAY. This doesn’t seem to work right every time, so I’m not sure if I’m doing something wrong or it’s not working the way I think it should.

    This is neat. I think that setting the language and setting the voice seem to do the same thing. Perhaps language just picks the default voice for that language.
    The example in the documentation says that setting speech.voice overrides the speech.language setting. In running this, it seems that setting language also overrides voice
